Three-Meter Monument to Happiness Appears in the Center of Izhevsk

Inhabitants of the capital of Udmurtiya are already getting New Year's gifts. Among them is a huge horseshoe located on the river bank.
      The three-meter figure has been set up near the architectural sight of Izhevsk - the ancient building of Bodalyovs beer factory. The horseshoe of polyfoam was created by a group of enthusiasts. The authors believe that this is exactly how the monument to Happiness should look like.
      Igor Chepkasov, the author of the project, has explained: For majority of people happiness is associated with a horseshoe. It is an old belief: if you find a horseshoe or you get a horseshoe - happiness will come to you.
      According to the authors plan, the symbolical horseshoe will first of all bring happiness to lovers and newly-married couples. Approaching the New Year ice sculptures of Father Frost and Snow Maiden will appear next to the lucky Horseshoe.
